Dominican Kinder Jog

By Bosky Panjvani

Approximately 35 fleet footed kids, and a few parents, will be helping their school - Dominican Kindergarten - raise funds by running laps on Friday, May 2. These young athletes will participate in the "Kinder Jog, an annual fundraiser at Dominican Kindergarten from 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. on the Dominican Kindergarten premises.

Former Dominican Kindergarten Director and Teacher, Sister Kathleen MacAvoy, initiated this unique fundraiser in 2000, which has now become a tradition of the Dominican Kindergarten. Kindergarteners will participate in a 1/5 mile jog around the school driveway taking turns to run the lap for two hours. Apart from the kids, a few parents and Dominican sisters will also participate.

Spectators are encouraged to watch and encourage participants of the Kinder Jog free of charge. An audience raises the enthusiasm of kids while running laps. To participate in the fundraiser, sponsoring runners is encouraged and raffle tickets are available for prizes including gift cards and baskets, and other items sponsored by local businesses. The school is also accepting monetary donations. The fundraising committee expects to raise between $13,000 - 20,000 at this Kinder Jog event. Tax deductible donations for the benefit of the school can be made to the Dominican Kindergarten Office.

Proceeds from this unique fundraiser will be used for Dominican Kindergarten's classroom and facility needs, tuition assistance for the kindergarten and St. Joseph School, the St. Joseph Build-a-Church Fund, Word Net Productions, Mission San Jose Internationality Fund, and St. Joseph School family assistance.

To make a tax deductible donation, contact Marianna Tarantino at (510) 651-7978.
